The 60-minute session, hosted by the Annie E. Casey and William T. Grant foundations, includes discussion about:

  • How to ensure that all children and families can benefit from Family First program selections, despite a dearth of evidence-based programs focused on families of color.
  • Ways state and local agencies have engaged families and communities in designing a continuum of care that addresses the needs of young people of color and LGBTQ youth.
  • How to cultivate community support for programs that prevent the need for foster care or help kids grow up in families while in foster care.
